Qt3 Movie Podcast: American Made


#1
Doug Liman brings us the story of a roguish drug smuggler against a backdrop of real-world political intrigue.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at http://www.quartertothree.com/fp/2017/10/02/qt3-movie-podcast-american-made/

Doug Liman: “We’re not making a biopic.”

Apparently some pilots died during the filming, too.

EDIT: I just got to the part where Tom mentions it.

Iran-Contra: an actual scandal.
The Clintons: an actual American crime family.

Saw this yesterday and enjoyed it. It wasn’t an amazing film, but I thought it was fun. Looking forward to listening to the podcast.
